I was just given 4 full boxes of this ammo. I was wondering if anyone can tell me anything about it. Price, history, or collectable item. thanks

Can't give you any history but I shot a lot of it in the late 60s and early 70's in competition. It was like shooting a 22 but with bigger holes.

This ammo is from the 1930's and is know as a "target box" this is because on the front it shows a target with bullet holes. If all the boxes are in this condition its best not to shoot it and put it up for auction to collectors.

Thank You both. I"ll hold on to it for now and not use it up.
